State Employees Must Get Flu Shot

August 14, 2014, 10:54 AM by Jaine Andrews

State Employees Must Get Flu Shot

If you are a state health care employee, be prepared to roll up your sleeves for a flu shot this fall.

Governor Dennis Daugaard has signed an executive order requiring annual flu shots for all state employees who deliver health care services. Employees have until December 1st to get the vaccination.

The order requires flu vaccination for all state employees who provide direct health care services, have regular contact with vulnerable populations, or have a role in responding to disease outbreaks. The requirement also applies to contract staff, vendors, students, supervising faculty, or volunteers who provide services in state institutions and offices.

Individuals who have a documented medical reason for not getting the shot, or have religious objections will not have to be vaccinated.
